With Tuesday’s 3-0 victory over Jackson, the Lady Cavaliers have improved to 6-1, and they’re 2-0 in Region 4-AAA.
“We have a lot of home games, so we want to take advantage of that,” Callaway head coach Kori Skinner said.
On Tuesday, with a boisterous student section offering its support, the Lady Cavaliers built a 1-0 lead at the half, and then tacked on two more goals in the second half to put it away.
“It was nice to win at home. We had a pretty good crowd,” Skinner said.
The Lady Cavaliers had numerous chances to score early, but they were unable to convert.
With 23:40 left in the first half, a Jackson player touched the ball with her hand in the box, giving Callaway a penalty kick.
Emily Shea, the team’s leading scorer, knocked the penalty kick into the net, giving Callaway a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.
In the second half, freshman Brittany Mitchell scored to make it a 2-0 game, and Shea scored on a breakaway for the third and final goal.
“It was nice to get that third one,” Skinner said. “We got some other kids in the game after that.”
Callaway will look to continue its perfect start in the region when it hosts Rockmart on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
“We just want to get as many of these (region wins) as we can, especially at home,” Skinner said.
